The client was unable to evaluate the impact of marketing spend on sales and hence, wanted to conduct a holistic assessment of the impact of its marketing activities by understanding the direct and long-term impact (via brand equity) on sales.
The Smart Cube developed a multivariate linear regression model to measure the impact of marketing activities on key brand equity KPIs, and undertook factor and correlation analysis to develop a market mix model-based solution to arrive at the overall ROI from media levers. We developed an interactive simulator tool to enable planning of various ‘what-if’ scenarios around sales drivers and media, thereby predicting ROI.
We helped the client optimise $150 million media spend and gain additional ROI of 15–25% in marketing spend through spend reallocation of several categories such as snacks and beverages. In addition, the team helped the client gain an incremental 1% volume growth in the beverages category through reallocation of spend.
The client wanted to streamline its assortment planning in EMEA (40+ countries) and derive sales benefits through optimal brand range prioritisation.
Our team created a scenario modelling tool combining internal data and consumer research for local commercial teams to plan for different assortments and their outcomes. We recommended strategic alignment of range for channels in 8 markets to derive sales benefits, as well as trade narratives for discussions with channel partners.
The primary and secondary range recommendations helped the client expect benefits of €50 million in 8 key markets, along with improving customer reach by 10% (on average) across these markets.
UrbanStems was experiencing high demand peaks and volatile purchase patterns and wanted to ensure consistent delivery of its services and maintain customer satisfaction through sustainable demand forecasting.
Using our Revenue Growth Management solution, we undertook Purchase Pattern Analysis, and Demand Sensing and Management, which included custom-built algorithms to identify time-based purchase patterns and forecast overall demand. We projected numbers using time series models for the year ahead (with highest accuracy for the following three months).
UrbanStems has been able to leverage The Smart Cube’s order volumes forecasts and purchasing pattern model (comprising intelligence such as event-based orders and customer-level planning) for its in-house forecasting models, leading to greater levels of accuracy and improved forward planning.
